I am Abhay Tripathi from Smart Entrepreneurs Group Federation For Woman which was started in the year 2020 with the aim to make every woman financially independent in life by imparting right skills in them and helping them out in getting the right job. Several women in rural India are a victim of domestic violence but they still cannot take action against because they are financially dependent on their husband. Every woman in our country should be financially independent as that would reduce the rate of child marriage, reduce class and income inequalities, increase family income, more likely to educate their child, contribute to global economic growth and be EMPOWERED.We have helped out 77 women in the last 10 months and now we aim to help out at least 1000 women in the next 6 months from the villages of Gummidipoondi by imparting different sets of computer skills in them which includes microsoft word, excel, photoshop, tally, DTP, web development, amazon account management, e-commerce site management and help me them out in using that particular skill to earn a living which makes them independent in life.
A story on how it changes a woman's life:
Nandini, a 31 years old housewife residing at Ellavur, a village of Gummidipoondi, Thiruvallur district in the state of Tamil Nadu along with her 5 years old daughter and husband. Her husband Kumar is a farmer. They did not plan to send their daughter to school because of inadequate funds and insufficient income. We met Nandini on July 2020 and counselled her to know more about her and find out her hidden qualities which would help us to find out what she is good at. Nandini did her education till class 6 and she could speak, read and write Tamil and read English and she was good at Mathematics. We convinced her to get trained in Tally, an accounting software widely used. Along with Nandini we took 4 more woman and took our team of teachers to make them skilful. We started training her in the open spaces of village while we were supported by the local officials. Nandini was well trained in Tally within the span of 4 weeks. As she was skilled now we donated her a basic laptop and helped her out in getting few freelance work which could be done from home itself. It has been around 10 months and now she is able to make around Rs 8000-10000 every month as she manages her work from home. She has now learnt how to file GST for different clients and her daughter is studying in Benith Nursery Primary School.
Through such a small initiative we were able to help Nandini and 76 more women get a better life for themselves.
